Geometrical CP violation with a complete fermion sector

  • Ivo de Medeiros Varzielas
  • Daniel Pidt


We consider Δ(27) models featuring geometrical CP violation, and analyse several structures that can obtain the observed lepton masses and mixing. The leptonic structures considered are entirely consistent with structures that reproduce the experimental data in the quark sector. This constitutes an existence proof of geometrical CP violation models accounting for the masses and mixing of all fermions.
